The Intellectual Heritage Program at Temple University invites applications from experienced instructors with doctorates in the humanities and social sciences for a full-time, non-tenure-track position for the 2015-2016 academic year, with the possibility of renewal.
The Intellectual Heritage Program administers a two-semester interdisciplinary humanities curriculum required of all undergraduates. The two-course sequence introduces students to works of literature, philosophy, social and political thought, and science that have shaped notions of self and society from antiquity to the present (e.g. the Iliad, Plato's Apology, the Daodejing, The Origin of Species, Capital, The Souls of Black Folk, Civilization and Its Discontents, The Second Sex, The Death and Life of Great American Cities). Both of the seminar-style courses promote critical inquiry, cultivated through close reading, debate, and writing. The teaching load will be four classes per semester, with 25-30 students per class.
